    Thanks for response ofc I meant Oct! Lets hope for a future BIOS update then, can't wait to get mine! I'm just curious if I made a mistake with the non K. Guess I will loose some fps in some titles, thats all. I game PUBG almost 90% of my hours so I think the Non K will be sufficent. Ive heard that a few few have recieved 9700k by ordering 9700 non K but that might be rumors.

    If you don't plan on tinkering with the CPU, the 9700 is just fine. I ordered mine with the 9700k because, for the applications I use, core speed is more important than core count. However, we can always change the CPU in the future if we need to (the beauty of the 51m).

    2666MHz memory probably won't happen because, as I have read on previous messages, the motherboard doesn't have quality tracers to maintain signal integrity. My guess is that we will see 2666MHz on the next years revisited version. However, the performance hit on Intel CPUs from 2666 to 2400MHz is very low.

    RTX 2080 51m's have about a 3 week delivery time. I know this because I ordered mine on the 14th of September and arrives tomorrow.

    I have the 9700K and I can clock it to 5.2ghz on all cores and keep temps below 90C with a -90mv undervolt. The 9700K is perfect for gaming right now. When I had the 9900K, I could only do 4.6 to 4.7ghz before I started hitting insane temps after gaming for a while. I’m definitely happier with the 9700K and the 9700 will do just fine as well; I’m not seeing any difference in gaming whether I’m overclocked or not with the 9700K so you are good.

    Nice to hear!

    Another fun fact would be to know if I payed more here in Sweden then you guys?. If I translate my buy to USD it would be 2930.36USD with 15% coupon

    Goverment over here have been adding chemical taxes and so on the last 5 years so electronics have become really expensive. But with coupons it sometimes ad up.

    Good price! I got the one in my signature for 2500 new in the box, which was also a steal

    That's an insane overclock, superb! What do you use to stress it or was that just gaming? Have you re-pasted at all or did you buy the CPU from Silicon Lottery?

    According to intel the 9700k base frequency is 3.6GHz and 4.9GHz for the mac turbo. I can see that the default on my 51M is 4.6GHz which I am assuming is the Max turbo. Is Alienware downclock the CPU by default? I have not play with OC yet as I preferred so far to keep it cooled than faster but should the default set to 49x instead of 46x?

    That's what I get for max turbo stock/default w/ 9700K, 4.6GHz. Thought it might have been because of the undervolt, but I don't know. Never worried because the thing powers through anything I throw at it with great temps to boot. Curious though...
